Hi,

You can restrict the Dashboard access to users like below

QMC -> Documents -> User Documents -> Select QVW file -> Authorization -> Click + icon ->

Now select User Type as Named Users.

Now click the Users icon and add the list of users require access for the Dashboard.

We already have section access which restricting the data as per user.

These are live dashboard. the only difference is we have converted all licenses to named Cal.

We don't want user to see all Dashboard in access point.  . We want the access to only one or two.

Please find below settings under the Document Properties.

For each application which is having section access, this setting should be enable.

Re: Selective Access for Named Cal

HI,

Which authorization you are using?  Is it DMS or Windows? Is you are using Windows then you have to give access to the Qlikview file in the folder.

QMC -> System -> Setup -> select Qlikview Server -> Security -> Authorization
